Questions about chiefdoms(government)
Hi, Are chiefdoms Irrelevant and a archeological delusion? Are chiefdoms the same thing as tyranny's? or a different type of government separate from tyranny?

I wanted to know after watching this video on chiefdom at 0:41 in the vid>>>

Hi, I cant post the link due to the 30/30 rule here. Sure I could google but I don't trust alot of the information out there as it might not be reliable and/or false with possibly people that don't know what there talking about so I would rather listen to sound sources, go straight to the horses mouth, professionals and people in the know. I came here also for a second voice on the questions to get to the truth of the matter as I consider atheists in general to be honest people and compare answers from the history forum(not on here) to see if there the same. If there not well then somethings not right espeasaclly If the answers are contradictions.

A chiefdom is a kin based aristocracy. Tyranny is an adjective, not a form of political organization. It describes a state of affairs which might refer to more than one form of government.

Your epistemology has some problems.

Just out of the gate as it were. What is it that you think a 'Chiefdom' is?

What sort of social organization might it havd been?

Cheers.

I think chiefdom might be a pre historic Neolithic government in Neolithic society's or civilizations with a counsel of elders but with a leader who is also part of the counsel, he is the head spokesman of a tribe. this predates tyranny, despots or dictatorships and before monarchies

RE: Questions about chiefdoms(government)
Chiefdoms persist to this day, and persist as an artifact of family organization in countries like ours.

As far as evidence for neolithic cheifdoms, we wonder about the richness of particular burials and even more so about their being left undisturbed by people who knew where they were and had plenty of need for the funerary items. The notion is that we're looking at a person who was empowered to effect the redistribution of agricultural excess or prestige goods. There have probably been more chiefs loved by their tribe than not. The intimacy and proximity of the relationship means that a tribal chief has more to worry about from his people than a representative body 900 miles away.
